Essex Youth Orchestra - The Snowman

Essex Youth Orchestra - The Snowman

Presented by Essex Music Services

Essex Music Service is delighted to present Raymond Briggs’ beloved adventure, The Snowman animated film, accompanied by the talented young musicians of Essex Youth Orchestra, led by Matthew Andrews.

On a snowy night, a young boy called James looks out of his window and sees that the snowman he built has miraculously come to life. As he runs outside, the snowman offers his hand and whisks James away on an incredible Christmas Eve adventure.

The Snowman is a timeless story and this unique performance with music performed by a live orchestra will be an unmissable and memorable performance for all to enjoy.
